Woopra launches realtime analytics for paying users

[Lebanon] Back in March, 2008 we first wrote about Woopra the realtime web analytics startup that originated from Lebanon which, unlike Google Analytics, offered a desktop application to track websites visits as they happen. Since then Woopra has been in beta, upgrading its desktop app and offering a web version .

Today Woopra has come out of beta and introduced paid accounts, thus monetising its service. Previously it relied only on banner Advertising displayed at the home screen of its desktop app. This now means paying users do not need an invitation to the beta. It also means the removal of the 10,000 page view per day limit. Woopra is planning to add new features in about a month that will include a new Desktop version.

I had a sneak view earlier today at Woopra’s official package plan. This does not differ much from the original drafted plan in pricing but, for instance, SSL support is  enabled in all packages, and the page views limit has increased for all packages except the free basic and the Bronze packages. The official packages starts with free accounts package which is the only type that still requires an invitation. It includes a monthly page views limit of 30,000, comes with no segmentation, and is only available to non commercial websites. For more information about Woopra’s new paid account see this post .

Full segmentation is offered only to Gold, Platinum and Titanium packages, the latter priced at $99.95 per month or $999.90 per year for sites with “heavy” traffic but not more than four million page views per month.

    This looks like a very interesting alternative to Google analytics. Only time will tell if people are really prepared to pay for the additional features

    Thank you for this review and commentary on Woopra. We got a lot of input from our thousands of beta testers and members, and spent a lot of time reviewing their input and coming up with the plans as they are now. We made a lot of changes and will be making more as we move through this first phase of implementation.

    What we can’t talk about right now but only hint at are the new features we are working on for the next couple versions of Woopra. Improvements that are going to really complete head on with other analytics programs, making Woopra not just very powerful for tracking your website or blog’s stats, but things you can’t get with lower priced analytics.

    One of the most exciting features we just released are Custom Reports. We want to give our users the power to customize their data reports to meet their needs, not what information we tell them they need to know.

    Can you tell I’m excited about Woopra! :D It’s a great group of people and highly innovative and creative. It’s fun working with them, but also fantastic to see how the whole analytics industry is growing and changing with the competition.

    Thanks again and welcome to TechCrunch!

    We’ve been trying out Woopra during it’s beta phase and in general it’s a pretty nice alternative to Analytics. The real-time monitoring gives an interesting insight into what your visitors actually get up to on site! We look forward to seeing how the product develops with keen interest.

    I agree that is a very good alternative or even better than GA based on the features I have seen.
